When this post goes up I’ll be on holiday (very much excite). On my summer holiday I probably won’t wear much makeup at all – a waterproof mascara and something to fill in my eyebrows and I’m good to go for the day! This is the general case if the place I’m going is warm, but I still bring all my makeup for nights out/if the weather changes therefore I thought I’d share with you the makeup I bring!
I’ll obviously pack a primer as I want my base to last, then I’ll pack my base of choice, this being the Bourjois cc cream as I find it great in warmer weather. With concealer I usually bring two – one for under the eyes and one for spots etc. (although I do find in warmer places I end up having really clear skin). Powder is a necessity, my MAC studio fix is my holy grail powder, I know a lot of people can find it cakey but I love it and bring it literally everywhere (even though it’s hit pan which makes my want to cry). To add some colour to my face I’ll bring a bronzer and a liquid blush (for longevity in the warm weather). The Benefit Lolli-tint is a great option for this! (Even if I didn’t include it in the photo).
For brows it’s just a simple brow product, my Soap and Glory brow archery is my favourite at the moment! As much as I wanted to bring my Naked 3 palette it’s wayy to big to bring on holiday so the naked basics palette is just perfect for the eyes. You can create a simple eye but also a lovely smoky eye so it’s quite versatile. I always bring two mascaras, the one I use everyday (just incase I need it on a day out) and a waterproof mascara because that’s very much needed for the beach/swimming pool. I’ve already tried and tested the Maybelline waterproof mascara and it’s SO amazing! Lip products always seem to catch me out; I’ll pack 2 then end up with 5 so this time I’m promising myself to pack light. I’ll bring a lip balm, a bright lip option and a nude option as well. I’ll also pack my nail varnishes just incase I need to repaint my nails on holiday so it’s always handy.
This is what’s inside of my holiday makeup bag and it will easily last me the week!
